A website working similarly to a "take a penny, leave a penny" tray common at many convenient stores in the US. You upload a file to get access to other uploaded files on the site.


  • No files visible upon visiting the site.
    • User is presented with a file upload box.
  • Strict file size limit, like 1MB or something.
  • Limited sampling of files are presented to the user upon upload.
    • Not all of the files. Keeps it interesting.
  • Strict one download per upload.
  • File is deleted after so many downloads.
  • Max number of files or disk size on the server.
    • 1,000 1MB files maybe?
    • Upon the "penny tray" getting full, full access to all files is presented to the user until a sufficient amount of room is made in the "tray" at which point it reverts to presenting the user with an upload box.


  • Rating system
    • After each file download, the downloader can rate the file
    • Each uploader will have a list of stats based on their ratings
    • Highly rated files may be archived for future glory
